I replaced mines not too long ago. I have a BMW 3281 -1999. I am not sure if the 2000 is much different. But hwat I did is as follows.

1. Remove the plastic covers.
2. Remove the nuts holding the wipers
3. To remove the assebly DO NOT pull straight up, but rather start pushing the wiper down against the spring loaded mechanism. Do it several times and you see that the assembly starts coming off. (this is the trick a learned, otherwise is it almost imposible to remove them).
4. Once replaced, put back together the assembly, nut and plactic cover. The whole job should take you like one hour.

How to check & change a wiper motor, and repair wiper mechanism on 2001 VW Golf

First time you must diagnose why windscreen wipers going slow and/or stopping.
In order to find out the cause of wipers stopping you can try follows:

1. Carefully extract the wiper arms from their axles (two pieces). In some cases you need to use an extracting tool. Heed of the windscreen !!!
2. Disassemble the plastic covers from the bottom of the windscreen.
3. With the bonnet up you can start the engine, (transmission in "N" or "P" position and parking brake on). Now you must switch on the control lever of the wipers, and go to the engine compartment. If the wiper motor runs let the wiper motor running for a few minutes and switch off. Go to the step 4. If the wiper motor do not runs you must check first the electrical feeding of the motor. If the electrical feeding is OK you must replace the motor - steps 5, 6. If not, you must check electrical connections, the control switch of wipers and harness.
4. Now you must check the two bearings of wiper mechanism with your hand. In the most cases the left bearing is out of order (is very hot). This is the most encounter fault of the wipers running.
5. You must disconnect the electrical coupling of the motor (difficult assurance), unscrew three bolts of the mechanism and extract together with the motor. You must move them slowly between windscreen and engine computer box until the wiper motor go out together with the mechanism. This is the most difficult operation!
6. Now you can repair the bearings, replace entire wiper mechanism or replace the wiper motor. It is not very simply, but it works.
Heed of the windscreen !!!
Refit all in reverse order.

The wiper motor is situated under the plastic air intake cover at the bottom of the wind screen.Remove the wiper arms and the clips holding the cover on , replace the wiper motor and operate before putting the wiper arms back to return the motor to it's park position.
